Like photographs, wedding videos are some of the few tangible memories that couples can hold on to long after their wedding days. But, one couple was in for a hilarious surprise when they dusted off their VCR wedding tape to celebrate their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary.

In a now viral tweet, the couple's daughter Molly Knapp tweeted, "My parents' wedding videographer intercut a clip from kermit and miss piggy's wedding into their service?? without asking???" along with a video from the ceremony.

The video begins with the bride, Knapp's mother, walking down the aisle before the scene immediately cuts to a group of muppets looking around in anticipation. The funny footage appears to be a scene from the 1984 film The Muppets Take Manhattan, in which Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy tie the knot.

“I think it’s absolutely hilarious,” Knapp told TIME. However, Knapp and her parents may never know the videographer's reason for inserting this random clip. “He’s out of business, and we can’t reach him unfortunately,” she said.

Still, fellow Twitter users who were amused by the tweet had several theories. One user seemed to think this was a trend back then tweeting, "I digitized a wedding tape from the ‘80s for a couple in Long Island & this had the same thing. I think it was some kind of trend at the time?" Another user replied, "LMAO my parents wedding video begins with their wedding and has this too. They got married in 93’."

If this trend wanted to make a comeback, we wouldn't be opposed! Until then, we will just be laughing at this video for the rest of the day.
